Off the cuff...
We finally got here! This magazine has seen
drastic changes since its birth in fall of 1995. Through
the evolution of the mag we've changed printers, twice,
our advisor was on sabbatical for a semester, and we've
seen a constant influx of working staff. We searched
our souls looking for identity, (our own and the
publication's) and I think we've at least found a good
one for the magazine. This is where I wanted the
publication to be all year, stories, design, and art.
Stories that mean something to students, the trials and
tribulations of every day commuting. Stories that look
at what really happens at those come one, come all
house parties here in El Dorado. In case you ever
wondered what our mascot's purpose is, see the
historical account of our school symbol. Engaging in
social and environmental issues, Vanessa Whiteside
analyzes the use of hemp as a fiber source. This is
something we in the publishing business must be
cognizant of since we are on fiber medium. Editorials
tackle affairs that should matter to students. Ryan
Wright speaks of the administration's policies to parent
us and student complacency, keeping Butler from being
all it can be. Art and design that compliment the story,
but tell their own tale. When the light dims, shadows
become obscure and black. Shutter speeds slow,
allowing motion to blur. 1 have tried to tell stories
through photographs at this mysterious threshold that
leaves part of the world unseen. After a year of hard
work, and sometimes struggle with computers, printing
companies, advisors, administrators, fellow students
and staff, we got to this point. I am proud to say I've
had a hand in the evolution of The Grizzly magazine.
Where it will go from here, only time will tell.
Volume II, Issue 3 of the Grizzly magazine was produced by the Grizzly staff and printed by Mennonite Press, Inc.
Newton Kan. Denise Siemens was the Mennonite Press sales representative.

pring fever is here! It's time to
come out of winter's hibernation
and get outside to enjoy Kansas
spring weather. For some, that means pull-
ing out, lubing up the mountain bikes and
preparing to hit the trails. From long dis-
tance endurance rides, to fast steep down-
hill descents, there are few things that can
compare to the thrill and excitement of
"Riding is kind of like sex. It's
the thrill of the whole experience that
makes it so enjoyable," according to rider
Nearby Kansas trails let the rider
experience some of the most scenic land
anywhere. Every so often, mountain bik-
ers must stop, catch their breath, and sim-
ply take in the beauty of nature. After all,
there's a lot to gaze upon when you're
not dodging roots and rocks and other rid-
ers. And every trail gives the rider
something to reflect upon when sur-
rounded by a variety of wildlife, trees,
plant life, and unique landscapes.
Riding the trails gives people a chance
to get out and see nature in a way most
do not. It is not necessary to be a thrill-
seeking, death-defying speedracer to
enjoy mountain biking. The thrill-seek-
ing side of mountain biking is an added
"I get a big kick out of moun-
tain biking because I love to be out-
doors and riding fast," says Grizzly
editor in chief and mountain bike fa-
natic Jeff Cooper. "I like to see every-
thing zipping by my head. I love to feel
the rush while riding at extreme speed."
It's a complete and extreme
rush when a rider speeds through a
downhill descent as fast as his pedal-
ing legs will allow. Extreme riding is
all about being a little out of control.
When flying downhill through the trees
and seeing an abrupt turn up ahead,
your mind says SLOOOOOOW
DO WN ! ! ! However, there is an excite-
ment bug or something from deep
down within that screams FASTER!
FASTER! FASTER! The adrenaline
starts flowing and all senses are at
their peak, knowing that any slight mis-
take could result in wearing trees.
When you make it, you get this little
tingling feeling inside, knowing what
you have accomplished. If you don't,
well, you may be picking bark out of
your teeth for a while. It is a part of
riding that every rider has to deal with,
but riders can't let the fear of accidents
control their ride. The goal of riding is
to keep wipeouts to a minimum. "I hope

to have fun without eatin' it," says El
Dorado sophomore and rider Brad
In early March the Grizzly staff
rounded up a handful of Butler students
for a ride at Santa Fe lake. The riders
were: Carl Bailey (a.k.a. Crazy Carl);
Brad Newby, Paul Bethel, Jeff Cooper,
and myself participated in the ride. We
all met at the lake at three o'clock; we
did some last minute bike repairs before
we hit the trails. Then, we headed to the
trails behind the dam at the lake. One by
one, we blazed up and down steep hills,
around sharp turns, and through water
and mud. It felt like I was riding a roller
coaster, except, this time I was in con-
trol of steering. As we were blazing
through the trails, it did not take us long
to find ourselves covered in a little mud
"Kansas trails have mud, whereas
Utah, California, Arizona, New Mexico,
other places where I have ridden, simply
don't have that much. I like to go down there
and get sloppy," says Cooper.
At the bottom of the first hill was
a small stream to cross. And when we ran
through it, water and mud exploded every-
where, just like shrapnel from a bomb.
Some of the valleys were completely mud-
infested. As we continued to ride, Crazy
Carl had his eye on one particular jump the
whole time, and it was not an ordinary jump
either. He thought of jumping off a cliff at
least 20 feet high into a small creek below
the cliff. Carl walked up to the edge of the
cliff and thought to himself, "It was a long
way down but I am going to do it no matter
what as long as the creek is deep enough."
He then climbed down into the water to

Ryan Wright ft L a s t of the Free Thinkers
In America we have certain inalienable rights that
are guaranteed to us by the Constitution. Of those rights,
the number one right is the right to free speech.
This freedom is supposed to be guaranteed to all
Americans. However, on this campus it is not. The only area
that there is true freedom of speech, and it still comes with
restrictions, is the student publications. It is this freedom
that allows me to sit here and write this column. It is also
that freedom which allows the Lantern to misspell words,
and have grammatical errors, but nevertheless, the freedom
However, don't think for a minute that certain
members of the administration would not like to censor us.
Fortunately there are still some souls who have come in
from the backwoods enough to realize that censorship can
not be tolerated. Through this column I hope to point out
some "little gray areas" for which this campus is quickly
1 ) Having freedom of speech in this public college
is not the case for the typical student. For instance, let's say
that a student needs a ride home or they need a roommate.
At any other college in the state you would be allowed to
put up a note or two on a bulletin board, but that is not the
story here at Butler. Students are not allowed to put up any
information without first getting the permission and "stamp"
(literally) of permission from the vice-president for student
services, Bill Rinkenbaugh.
The thought of even having to use a stamp to put
up information is unimaginable, and unacceptable. This cam-
pus is filled with public buildings that have been paid for
with public funds, yours and mine included. What this re-
ally means is that Rinkenbaugh doesn't have enough real
work to do, which would keep him busy like his counter-
parts at other state schools.
2) As a student and an American, it is policies like
these that insult me and my intelligence, and it should insult
yours. It was not so long ago that the Lantern wrote about
gun control. In response they received letters both pro and
con to the argument. Well, students where are your letters
of complaint now? The truth is that students on this campus
have been complacent for too long.
While not everything has to be a federal case, le-
gitimate cases like these must be fought. That is what "Gen-
eration X 1 ' is all about. Plus, if you forgot, this is what col-
lege is all about: sharing learning and experiencing life. It is
about meeting people you don't understand and learning
what makes them different from you. It is about asking ques-
tions regarding who you are and who you want to be and
finding out the answers. ..good or bad. It is college and it is
youth and it is challenging authority in a constructive man-
ner and making change happen.
3) Do you care, fellow students, that our fees have
been raised for next year? While it is only a few dollars, and
many of us are on scholarship, the trustees have been rais-
ing tuition a few dollars each year for nearly a decade. It is
to the point now where we pay some of the highest fees in
the state. Plus, as one of my wise instructors said, "..if you
are selling a product and your sales go down, you don't
raise the price of the product. Trim your budget and lower
the price or make due." That statement seems pretty logical
to me. But do our well established trustees know this? No,
I have digressed, but the point I am trying to make
is that the growth process cannot occur if you have an over-
bearing administration and a complacent student body. If
you are scared of "free thinking" then you are ignorant of
the American ideal.
This is why I have chosen to write about some of
our school's interesting and questionable policies. The re-
sponse I receive is that I am against the administration. This
is not true. But if being "against" the administration is what
it takes, then you may continue to think that way and let the
cards fall where they may. Put simply this is not true, and I
would favor an open forum for students to discuss with ad-
ministrators their concerns. If you are committing crimes
against the Constitution, however, then you are out of line
and I will tell you.
4) Let's look at some public official's for a minute,
Dan McFadden. Well, let's just say that he has the job we
all are looking for. He receives free room and board for his
family, and all he has to do is walk around and keep the
dorms "under control." Is it fair to place our foreign speak-
ing students with the scum of Butler dorms, so they could
not possibly enjoy a safe and secure learning environment,
that might I add they paid dearly for? Is it fair to let students
tear up the buildings and make the janitors come through
Ryan's Column . The Grizzly
and have to clean it up? Oh, isn't it also against the fire code
for beds to be out in the hallways blocking them from easy
passage should a fire break out? Probably. Of course all of
these things are wrong but to think that they don't happen is
foolish. Perhaps, what is more foolish is thinking that Bill
Rinkenbaugh would do his job and correct them. Why rock
the boat if you live off it?
5) It would be nice if Rinkenbaugh would address
these problems, but he is too busy conducting bogus investi-
gations that lead nowhere. Much like the investigation into
the phone card fiasco. Let's see... they admitted it, the season
is over, but you still don't have enough information. ..Hey
Bill, ever thought about working on an independent counsel
for the government?
6) Anyway, about two months ago, 1 was
rollerblading through campus enjoying our beautifully mani-
cured lawns, when out of the blue came the free thinking
police. Yep, security was on the case. At first I didn't know
what to think of it, I mean we actually have security. I wasn't
sure we had security officials who were allowed to do any-
thing but ticket cars and watch basketball games from the
stands where Kay Rice, head security, has been known to
reside from time to time.
Apparently, I was breaking another "school policy"
or something like that. I innocently inquired about this policy
because as you may know rollerblading is allowed at all of
the major schools of higher education, except this one, and 1
use the term loosely.
Now security was only doing its job in coming down
to break up my fun, but was Spanish instructor Marsha
Mawhirter doing her job when she called security? Accord-
ing to Ted Albright, she was the instmctor who called to in-
form security of the rollerbladers. Apparently, Mawhirter,
for whatever reason, had enough free time on her hands be-
tween busy classes to make these phone calls. Perhaps with
the extra money we receive, the school will add another Span-
ish class so Mawhirter doesn't have to be troubled by these
7) The point of this all goes back to freedom or lack
thereof, on this campus. If Butler wasn't so busy being our
parents and were more concerned with the quality of our
education, then maybe our enrollment numbers wouldn't be
down. If we needed parents around 24 hours a day, seven
days a week, then we would still be in high school.
I really only have this to say to the powers that be:
if you outlaw rollerblades, then only outlaws will own
rollerblades. Stop with the insanity and just do your jobs,
and to quote Pink Floyd, "leave us kids alone!"
So to all of you administrators and instructors who
take your jobs too seriously, just do us all a favor and get a
dog or a gold fish. That way you can take out all of your
frustrations due to not having lives and become more ful-
filled as a person. This will, in turn, help your personalities
and I wouldn't be surprised if our "numbers" might just start
going up again. Remember, students FIRST.
check how deep it was. The creek was
only about two feet deep. After pon-
dering in deep thought Bailey finally
said, "What the hell, I'll jump it."
Right before jumping, Bailey
said, "I was just going over the steps and
making sure my front end was up when
I came off the dirt so I wouldn't do a
somersault and break my neck. It was
like the calm before the storm when I
was sitting up there." Then he was ready
to go and said to himself, "Ah #&%$,
here we go, and I just took off." Bailey
picked up good speed before the cliff.
He reached the edge and lifted up on
the bars pulling his front tire up, launch-
ing him in the air.
"It felt like I was in the air for
probably a minute. It seemed like I was
never coming down," says Bailey. He
stayed on his bike the whole way down
and into the water, where he and his bike
disappeared behind the wall of water
created by the splash landing. Suddenly,
he jumped up screaming YEEEAAHH!!
Quickly patting himself down to make
sure he was not hurt. Carl then looked
down to see his tire floating in the wa-
ter. He picked up his bike and saw that
the steel fork holding his tire in place
had snapped completely in half. Bailey
grabbed both the bike and the loose tire
and lifted them above his head like he
had just won the Stanley Cup.
"I was on such an adrenaline
high that I couldn't feel the water. It
felt like it was 80 degrees (It was prob-
ably closer to 40 degrees). Even 30 min-
utes to an hour later, I still couldn't feel
anything. I was on such a high. You
could not compare it to any kind of high.
I mean I have smoked weed, drank beer,
and I've had adrenaline highs, but that
took the cake," says Bailey.

Commuting becomes a way of life
for the majority of students taking classes
here. Some students spend as much as two
hours a day in their cars, guiding that one-

time listening to music, putting on their
makeup, praying, meditating, eating and
reading. Reading? Yes, reading.
"I try to catch up on my reading

to refresh myself with the material that my
teacher assigned that he's going to be lec-
turing about as soon as I get there."

who lives on the west side of the big Sedgwick County city. "All I
know is that I drive about 45 miles one way to El Dorado, and by the
time I leave my front door and find a parking space at school, it takes
about an hour."
Like a lot of traditional students who commute, McClanahan
listens to T-95, or he pops in a CD. "I've got to have something to wake
me up. I've got an 8 o' clock class on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and at
that hour I've gotta crank it up to get me going."
Eureka sophomore Sean Thornton can't pickup a "good sta-
tion" like T-95 until he gets within a few miles of El Dorado's east city
limit, so he relies on his CD player, too. He estimates that he drives
about 80 miles a day, five days a week. After four semesters Thornton
reckons he's put about 5,440 miles on his car.
"Most of the time, it seems like I
sleep the entire trip to school," he laughs. "I've
gotten to where 1 don't even remember how I
got there, I've driven it so much."

it easy on T-95 and tune in NPR and All Things

Live from Butler County Community College, it's the Cam-
pus Edge television news show and 88. 1 FM. Every weekday
you can tune to 88. 1 FM to hear upstart D.J.s playing music, talking
about current issues, or hear a basketball or baseball game... if you're
near the campus athat is.
The college radio station can only broadcast in a quarter mile
radius. The television station, the Campus Edge, produces a half hour
news show every other Friday. The show airs on Monday and Tues-
day at 8 pm on cable channel 49. The radio and TV stations offer
students unique opportunities that they can't get anywhere else. Both
classes give students the experience of hands-on training.
Now they can do more. Recently, the Radio/TV branch of
the Department of Mass Communications received permission from
the board of trustees to purchase new equipment for an audio produc-
tion studio, a television studio and an editing bay.
"All the equipment purchased is somewhere in the neigh-
borhood of $35,000," reports Lance Hayes, radio and television in-
structor. "This new equipment will be a good foundation for Butler's
In the not-to-distant past, TV students had to use the Media
Resource Center's facilities. The only piece of equipment that be-
longed to them was a consumer-type video-camera. Now, high tech
video switchers, cameras and VCRs have been ordered to bring the
"We are better off now that we are getting our own equip-
ment," Hayes says. "The MRC has their own obligations, but they've
been a lot of help."
Assistant TV producer Eric Lynn says it's about time. "It
was tough to work
around MRC's schedule. Now we can edit at any given time."
The interest in the radio program saw growth after the first
semester it was on the air. Its enrollment doubled. The programming
schedule was even changed from three-hour blocks to two hours to
allow room for more D.J.s.
Both stations are operated by students. Like any other stu-
dent publication, it has someone who is in charge. The station man-
ager at 88.1 FM is Tom McClendon, who ensures that things run
smoothly. McClendon, who calls himself a "Nontrad," also serves as
parent to the rest of the radio bunch.
"The administrative stuff is really my job. But obviously,
the kids do what I say, because I'm a little older. Plus I do a lot of
things in music, they think that's pretty cool," McClendon says.
Leadership can take the program a long way, but the techni-
cal side must comply as well.The license for the radio station is still
hanging in Washington D.C. and not all the audio and video equip-
ment has arrived. But at least a good foundation is set and the pro-
gram is finally on its feet.
"It's come a long way. But it hasn't come far enough. We
should be licensed and on the air rockin by now, and its
not happening," McClendon says.

Are You Naked?
Wanted: people of all sizes and shapes to shed their
clothes willingly in front of small groups of people, while
retaining their dignity. The job pays $7.50 an hour and all
interested parties should contact life drawing insniictor John
Oehm at 322-3171.
Sound familiar? Probably not, considering it doesn't
pay as well as a strip joint, but if you read closely, it says, "yet
while retaining a person's dignity." How could that be correct?
It's easy according to Kareem Scott, a nude model and Butler
"It's not hard. I'm confident in my body. I'm not losing
my dignity because they are doing it for an art fonn. They are not
staring at my genitals, they are concentrating on my muscle
definition and the fonn of my body, it's nothing sexual," Kareem
One student thinks Kareem is
brave. "I think it would take a lot of guts to
get up there naked." And a lot of guts he has.
Not many people have the courage to be half
dressed in front of a class, much less
completely naked, and seemingly vulnerable
for an extended amount of time.
Kareem says having strong family
ties has helped him be more confident in
himself and everything he does. Being a
male stripper has also helped him to endure
the sometimes embarrassing moments that
life drawing models might feel on their first
day on the job. Kareem found out about this
opportunity last year, but was unable to
participate in the class. When he found out
there was a need for a nude model this year
he jumped at the chance, and ended up being the only body for
Walking into the drawing studio, one might say that it
looked like a bad seduction scene in a low-budget film, with the
slow music and soft lighting. But while many people may think
atmosphere has nothing to do with the ability to draw, it does.
The atmosphere plays a big part in an artist's concentration and
ability to see the human figure in a new light. Do you think you
could draw a serene landscape if Nine Inch Nails was blaring in
the background? I think not.
Models look considerably different in their structure,
and pose, some are heavier than others, some look stiffer and
some are more natural looking than others. The current model,
Kareem, though, has a great deal of tone and muscle definition
visible. The worst thing about some models is not being able to
see their bone structure at all. Kareem doesn't have to worry
about the students scrutinizing and examining him too closely,
however, for there is not more to see than what meets the eye.
Let's just say that the word cellulite is not a factor. He is more
than comfortable with his muscular, fit body.
"I dance, and my whole family dances; I'm not
ashamed of my body so I figured why not get paid for doing
something I love. But I don't think of modeling in a sexual way,
it's an art form in it's own right."
Not many people are aware of the unique life drawing
class that is offered here.
"There is a life drawing class at every college with an
accredited art department," instructor John Oehm says. "We are
not the only college, so it's not an unusual class." Yet a small
class size seems to suggest that it may not be widely known on
campus. There are only eight people enrolled in life drawing
class this semester.
"I thought there would be more people in the class, but
with a small class I feel comfortable," Kareem says.
Oehm says the instructor presumes that when a student
enters the class for the first time they know nothing about life
drawing, so having such a small class actually helps the instruc-
tor to give each student more attention so that they may grow and
learn how to become a better artist.
Sitting nude in a room full of your peers,
being scrutinized by their eyes and their
drawings, can lead some people to wonder if
it is an awkward situation to be in.
"My first time that I had to get up in front of
the class I wasn't nervous. Before the class I
met John, he shook my hand and made me
feel very comfortable. The first day that I had
to model I met the students and they all started
asking me if I was nervous, and I said no. I
just got up there and took off my robe and
they started drawing me," Kareem says. "The
hardest thing about being a model is keeping
my poses for a long time, or having to get into
my own poses fast and sometimes I run out of
poses. I try to keep it interesting by using my
robe and abnost anything in the room."
Many students who take life drawing are art majors
and classify it as essential to, as Oehm says, "eliminate many
erroneous preconceptions" about the task of drawing the human
"It's learning how to look at tilings, more than
Oehm says. "We don't worry about success, we don't

To be a model many people think of the Playboy
type of body with a minimal amount of fat and maximum
amount of curves. According to Oehm, though, that is not
the case for his Life Drawing class.

ideal physique although my current model (Kareem)
comes pretty close," Oehm says. "But it's easier to say
what the worst thing about a model is and that is someone
who has just enough fat on their body that everything is

Man's Beasts Judged by the Gods of Livestock

There comes a day when
everyone will be judged
by the gods. Well, some
livestock will be judged the gods
as well, by Butler's livestock judg-
ing team, the gods of livestock
judging. The Butler County live-
stock judging team has shown its
dominance again this year by con-
sistently placing high at national
Coached by Blake
Flanders, the team judges cattle,
swine, sheep, and occasionally
horses. "We judge the future car-
cass potential. By judging market
livestock, we look to produce a high
quality carcass that will end up on
someone's table someday," says
Butler livestock judge Eric Kinsley.
The judging team com-
petes in shows across the country.
U n r i e n
otos by Justin Hayworth
"The three most important shows are
at Denver, Kansas City, and Louis-
ville, " Flanders points out. The live-
stock judging team does not receive an
overall ranking like many other sports.
"But if you took all three of those con-
tests, we would be the highest," said
Flanders. Overall, Butler ranked first
at Louisville, second at Denver, and
fourth at Kansas City.
"Before a contest you really
have to stay focused. The competitions
sometimes last eight to 10 hours, and
with one mistake, you are out of the
top 10, said Kinglsey. "
The judges first judge the
livestock based on market class and
breeding capabilites. "In the market
class, you look to produce a high qual-
ity carcus that will end up on somones
table someday," said Kingsley. "In
cattle, you want a lot of fat because it
makes the meat higher quality and
juicer." Swine and sheep, on the other
hand, should be very lean and free of
fat. Livestock are also judged for their
breeding capabilities. When judging
livestock for breeding capabilities,
judges look for "lots of guts and a big
rib cage," said Kinsley. The goal is to
get an estimate on the animals poten-
tial to reproduce for the future of the
herd. The livestock judgers give the
animals a score based on several
classes. After the livestock are judged,
the competitors must give a speech
approximately two minutes long to de-
fend their judging of the livestock.
Then the livestock judges place the
animals and give their reasons speech,
they are judged based on their placing,
and their ability to defend their place-
ment of the animals in their speech.

The start of this year's basketball
season at Butler would start to answer fans'
questions about the future of Butler bas-
ketball after the Randy Smithson Era. For
many fans the season started with uncer-
tainty. Could new head coach Steve Eck
work magic with the Butler team like he
had for 10 years with Wichita South High
School? Could Eck continue where
Smithson left off and make last year's third
place NJCAA team this year's NJCAA na-
tional champion? No one knew how Eck's
inaugural season would work out.
Fans quickly saw that not much
had changed from teams they had watched
in the past. Eck was holding his own as he
led the Grizzlies to a 16-0 start and the
nation's number one ranking. The number
one ranking was the first ever for Butler's
men's basketball team, Eck said. Doubt
subsided in fans and the only questions left
in their minds now were: Could Eck and
his team complete the season undefeated?
And more importantly, could the Grizzlies
finally capture the elusive national cham-
pionship that had so narrowly escaped them
in the past few years?
As the season continued and Eck re-

Plant for home games to catch a glimpse of
the nation's top ranked NJCAA team. All
was well in El Dorado.
The Grizzlies lost their first game
to Barton County Community College, 67
to 63 at Barton. After that loss the Grizzlies
fell from the number one ranking after a
month and a half in the top spot. The Griz-
zlies' first loss brought fans back to reality,
but didn't stop the fans' support at home
games. The Grizzlies finished the regular
season in second place of the Jayhawk West
conference with a 12-4 record. The Griz-
zlies' four losses all came on the road to
Barton, Dodge City, Cloud County, and
The Grizzlies started the Region
VI tournament with the third seed and a

won 97-68, advancing them to the quarter-
finals at Henry Levitt Arena, where they
faced the number six seed Coffeyville Red
Raiders. The Grizzlies were victorious 80-

play the number two seed Independence.
Against Independence the Grizzlies jumped
out to a commanding 34-27 half-time lead,
and they never looked back, defeating Pi-
rates 78-60. This win sent the Grizzlies to
the finals, where they would face the
Hutchinson Blue Dragons, for the third time
this season. In their first two meeting the
Grizzlies handed the Blue Dragons com-
manding losses, 75-47 at the Power Plant
and 9 1 -76 at the Hutchinson Sports Arena.
The previous two meetings didn't matter
at the time, it was a matter of who wins in
the final game. The winner goes to
Hutchinson for the NJC A A National Tour-
nament, and the loser goes home and be-
gins to prepare for next year.
According to Eck, beating a team
three times in the same season is hard to do.
Eck was right. The Grizzlies lost the opening
tip off and fell behind 2-0. They quickly
stormed back and took the lead 6-2, which
would be the Grizzlies' largest lead of the
night. Hutchinson then regained the lead with
two three pointers, making the score 12-11.
After that the Grizzlies would get no closer
than one point the rest of the game, and ended
up losing 66-56.
The Grizzlies' season had ended.
Their final record stood at 30-5. Though many
fans felt initial disappointment, Eck and the
Grizzlies have shown fans all year long that
they will put up a fight and refuse to lose eas-
ily. Despite the season ending before the Griz-

weather. The kids playing outside. The
The flowers and gardens growing and every-
one is having fun.
This spring, all of this can be seen happening
near the EduCare Center. With gardening growing to
be one of the largest hobbies in America, Butler has
designed a number of classes to help teach these skills.
As part of a new class offered by the horti-
culture department, instructor Pat Owen is leading her
class and the EduCare kids in a gardening class called
the Children's Garden.
Where do the kids come in? Well, they are
responsible for the planting of the seeds. With the help
of the Butler students, of course.
A mini-grant helped pay for supplies to use
in the garden. Local stores donated seeds to be used
in the garden. The college gave the class a small plot
of land in the circle drive of the EduCare Center for
the Children's Garden.
"I hope everyone will be able to do a better

job at gardening," Owen says when speaking
about her expectations for the class.
The only downfall to this class is at the
end of the semester.
"At the beginning of summer, we have
to tear down the garden to make it ready for
next semester, so we can start all over," Owen
In addition to the children's garden
class, Butler also offers Introduction to Horti-
culture, a class designed to help teach garden-
ing and landscaping. Spring Gardening, a one
hour credit course offered for three Saturdays
in Andover, differs with the group of students
in the class.
"I had to change my class syllabus
around because I had planned to do vegetables
and the class wanted to do flowers," Owen says.
Next semester there will be a class
called Woodies. This class will focus on trees

Fortunately, there was one
outstanding and talented student
who had what art instructor Lynn
Havel refers to as the "inner drive."
In 1986 Ken Snyder, a sophomore
majoring in art and welding, decided
to pay the highest tribute to the
mascot by constructing a nine-foot
version out of metal. For days the
sculpture sat without a proper
home because of administrative
controversy as to where the piece
of artwork should be placed. After
much decision, Snyder's work was
planted outside the 200 Building,
where it sits today completely
rusted but still bearing the hard
work of one student.
Two years later it ap-
peared in the guise of the yearbook
staff's "Grizz Lee MacKenzie."
But as of today, BCCC's mascot
remains virtually unnamed and
vaguely honored as it did in its
proudest day, when students felt
it necessary to sculpt larger than
life versions of the beast for all
campus goers to see.

But the weekend
doesn't just begin on Fri-
day, it begins on Thursday
and the festivities don't end
until the sun goes down on
Sunday night. From Empo-
ria to Wichita, and every-
where in between, students
find ways to have fun, even
if that means making some-
thing out of nothing.
'There is not a whole lot to do in El Dorado,
so usually I just sit around with my roommates and
play cards and talk about our lives. But every once in
awhile we get together and throw a big party for the
Butler crew. It is a lot of fun and a great break from
the normal rigors of the week. We can just forget about
school, work, and paying the bills and have fun," says
Wichita sophomore Lisa Urenda.
While many students are able to get away from
the normal grind of jobs and school, some find that an abun-
dance of time is something that they do not have.
"I wish I had a lot of free time, but the truth is that
I am always having to work. When I finally get off, half
the night is gone so it is important that I live it up when I
can, and that is exactly what I do.
In fact, sometimes I enjoy myself
a little bit too much and it has been
known to get me into some inter-
esting situations," says El Dorado
sophomore Karrie Eberle.
For some the party scene in El
Dorado gets old and so the migra-
tion northward begins, and every
city from Manhattan to Emporia
to Lawrence feel the effect of
small town living.
"I have a lot of fun here in El Dorado when my
friends and I go out and rock the town, but sometimes you
just need a break from the same old same old. That is why
every once in awhile we head up to K-State and check out
the Aggieville scene to experience what a real college town
is like," says El Dorado freshman Amanda Cushman.

to see Frogpond live in concert or make the short jaunt to Wichita to see OThil, students are
led by a higher calling of sweet melodic rhythms that seem to float along the Turnpike, calling
"I enjoy listening to the different bands play and a couple months ago we were sup-
posed to drive to Wichita and see OThil in concert, but we had to wait on one of our friends.
She ended up not showing until really late and by the time we actually got in the door, OThil
was already done playing and we couldn't get in to the band that was playing so we just left
and went to Denny's," says Winfield sophomore Erin Owen.
From music to parties to drunken war stories, students find a way to pass the time and
live each minute to the fullest even if they can't remember them when they wake-up. What we
do know is that while on the surface we are all connected by the common junior college. What
is seen at a closer look, are the ties that bind us together and allow us to be junior to no one. It
is these ties that forge the memories that are ingrained into each of us.
"El Dorado night life is about living for the moment and sharing a bond that can be
seconded by nothing; it is the bond of youth and living and being free to experience without
rules or consequences, if only for a moment," says Urenda.

The following doesn't contain encouraging
words to promote smoking the plant for its euphoric
qualities but rather to understand the multiple uses
of hemp as an environmentally friendly resource.
WARNING: This story was written for people with
open minds. ..ideally for the last of the surviving "free
thinkers" on this campus.
First and foremost, hemp is a strain of the
Cannabis Sativa L. plant that can't be comfortably
smoked for psychedelic purposes. With the regulated
percent of THC (the element of euphoria found in
marijuana) at about .3 percent, as opposed to 2 per-
cent in most forms of smoke-able pot, only an idiot
would permanently wreck their lungs while attempt-
ing to smoke the extremely coarse plant to get high.
Growing Cannabis Sativa is nothing new to for-
eign nations or even early Americans for the production
of over 25,000 fibrous goods. For example, hemp made
Kentucky what it is today. Hemp was the state's largest
cash crop before 1915. The state's climate was ideal for
cultivation of the green plant, the soil high quality and the
rainfall and sunshine proved reliable and abundant.
According to the March issue of Hemp Times
magazine, Andy Graves, fifth generation hemp cultivator
in a long lasting family tradition in Kentucky, agrees with
70 percent of the state's population to lift the ban on in-
"I really wish it (hemp) didn't have this stigma. I
wish we could just look at it and say 'Here's the vehicle to
help the environment and save the trees. Let's use it! ' rather
than getting side tracked with an issue that doesn't apply."
said Graves. "One's an agricultural plant the other's horti-

Every element of the plant from the tip of the leaves to
uried roots benefits the earth. The earliest use of hemp dates
to 4500 BC when the Chinese were developing a modest pa-
ndustry from hemp scrolls. For each ton of hemp used 12
re trees can be saved. Other functional uses of hemp include
gents, erosion control agents, varnishes, paints, fabrics,
)ads and countless others. But the boundless advantages need
op there. The leafy plant can help promote a healthy immune
m with its nutritional qualities. Seeds, stalks, flowers and oils
mp produce essential fatty acids which encourage the body's
iced physical state. (The seed's uses go beyond making "pot
nies" on a Saturday night amongst deadhead friends in a feeble
ipt at euphoria.)
Longtime advocates for the cultivation of hemp and
ist narrow minded legislative bodies have been working to
id it past the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937, associating hemp
criminately with its cousin marijuana. Actor Woody Harrelson
was arrested in Kentucky last June for planting three hemp seeds

-Michelle Phillips, actress.
lternative is what people began calling modern rock
when they discovered it was there. Grunge is the
style of guitar-obsessed alternative rock made fash-
ionable by flannel-clad lumberjacks from the north-
west. Grunge has been beaten to a bloody pulp by no-
talent clone bands recycling the same sloppy power-
chords and angst-ridden lyrics. Grunge is dead. Long
live modern rock. But, what is the next alternative?
The two most obvious candidates for the title "Next
Big Thing" are Techno and Ska music. Techno is a
general term encompassing all types of electronic
music, from industrial to neo-disco, to ambient. Elec-
tronic music relies heavily on pulsating, synthesizer-
driven sound samples, hip-hop-like beats, and a punk
attitude. Ska music is more traditional, having its roots
in reggae and punk and varying mostly in its balance
between these two influences. It is characterized by a
more laid back reggae attitude, contrasted with some
up-tempo punk rhythms with horns and peppy, up-
stroked guitar chords thrown into the mix.
Neither Techno or Ska are new types of music.
Techno was the subject of experiments done by pro-
gressive art-rockers like Brian Eno and Kraftwerk in
the 70's and Technotronic and others in the 80's. Like-
wise, Ska has been around nearly as long as its influ-
ences. Bob Marley plus The Sex Pistols equals Ska.
And, while neither type of music is new to the indus-
try, it is new to the mainstream audience. Techno and
Ska are not fresh, but are a refreshing alternative to
the stale fare served up by modern rock music, with
Southern rock and heavy metal influences.
. Techno 's more recent proponents include acts like
Prodigy and The Chemical Brothers. But, even more
traditional performers like U2, Smashing Pumpkii
and even Eric Clapton, are exploring music created
with electronic sounds. Now in its third wave of popu-
larity, Ska, of a very watered down variety, is heard
on some tracks by No Doubt, and from bands like
Goldfmger, but true Ska's only mainstream champi-
ons at the moment are The Mighty Mighty Bosstones.
If the showdown for mainstream audience accep-
tance is between these two styles of music, which will
be the victor? Techno music is far more versatile than
Ska music. It inherently has a wider range of sounds
and influences and more room for progression as the
technology involved only gets better. However, much
electronic music has no face. Audiences appreciate

being able to associate particular people
to certain elements in a band. They are
more comfortable with labels like bass
player and drummer than programmer.
And, Techno bands often have only one
or two people in them, hardly defining a
band in the traditional sense. Ska music,
on the other hand, is more accessible, as it
involves familiar sounds and arrangements
as well as the use of actual musicians play-
ing actual instruments.
If I had to place my money on one style
of music over the other, I would go with
techno. But, since ska can be made by
computer geeks with keyboards and sam-
plers just as easily as by ten musicians with
guitars, drums, and horns, there is prob-
ably room in the world for both.
